Still haven’t listened to it! My signed vinyl copy (ooh!) arrived last week, I’m waiting until we’re in the new gaff in a few weeks with a nice new record player to give it a go.

Very exciting.

Just wanted to say that Spotify says I was in the top 1% of Mountain Goats listeners this year. Considering I only got into them in July that's good going.

Some nerds on Reddit noticed John has registered 14 new titles with ASCAP. I think they checked sitemaps for big publishers and found a new album title on the way (including artwork!)



Dark In Here, coming July 25, 2021 apparently. God bless the other obsessive nerd Mountain Goats fans, what would we do without them.

Very exciting - they’ve been on a really solid streak for years at this point. I need to give Songs for Pierre Chauvin another go, but loved Getting Into Knives (even plumped for a signed copy!) and this one sounds like it was recorded around the same time so it should be a banger.

Been listening to 'Mobile' that will presumably be on Dark In Here and enjoying it.

I wasn't immediately taken with Getting Into Knives, but I've often found that that means I'll end up loving it so I should persevere.

I think that Bell Swamp Connection off of Getting Into Knives is one of the best songs he's done (that I've heard, I'm still digging through the back catalogue). Gives me chills.

Actually that's a fair point. Just as I'd typed that reply up there Bell Swamp Connection came on and I really liked it, so there past me.

I’ve had the lyrics for “Golden Boy” stuck in my head for 3 days, particularly the lines extolling the cosmological values of Golden Boy brand peanuts..

Quote
There are no pan-Asian supermarkets down in hell / so you can't buy Golden Boy peanuts there
But the streets of heaven are lined with shells / and there's billboards of the Golden Boy everywhere
